Also I think you don't want to mess with those gems with the 700 kills. Have to leave them intact for the end of the battle. No combining them or destroying them for the extra mana. What I did was go with the one tower surrounded by amplifiers and just kept buildind up the gems I hadn't used yet and swapping them out onto the tower as each one got it's 700 kills. I believe I used A13, 65 waves, good chunk of mana plus you start with lime. If you don't have it unlocked G8 has 10 less waves but the most mana of any fields. Just to reiterate, make sure you leave all 7 gems with their 700 kills intact and untouched to the end of the battle.

Got the 7x700 amulet just fine in my endurance run. Had 6 Grade 18 L/O/Y gems with 700 (non-combined) kills each (some had 700 (non-combined) kills and a thousand total kills. My main gem which was a grade 24 ended with like 8k (non-combined) kills and 24k total kills.

Make sure that on each gem, it's the top kill number that's over 700 when the map ends and not the bottom kill number. You must have 7 gems with the 700 top kill each (total of 4900 monster kills you would need to have on a level). If you combine any gem into the one your trying to get it on, it will reset your non-combined kills so you would need a strong enough gem to last thru Several waves without ever upgrading it.

And I did it with triple gems on this run and it worked fine.

I also did on my 2nd game playthru just fine with grade 13 duals. 6 gems with 700 top kill number kills each and my main 7th gem with well over 700 of the top kill number.

@JimClowe, @DragonMaster0283, @AirDecade

Thanks again for giving so much information and help. Unfortunately, like some others, I have followed every suggestion you've made, to the letter, and still no amulet.

I am finishing every single battle with exactly 7 gems on the field which have 700+ non-combined kills, and no other gems at all. I've tried numerous different fields. I've tried unlimited battles, ordinary battles with extra waves, epic battles and corner fields. I've tried dual, triple and pure gems. In most of my attempts, no other gems were ever destroyed for mana, and no shrines were built.

There has to be a logical explanation for the fact that some people get this amulet and some don't when we seem to be doing the same things. There's some sort of bug for sure. I am beginning to wonder

- whether it has something to do with when we started playing the game relative to the game version
- whether it's impossible to get this amulet after you've won the game (did all of you get the amulet before winning?)
- whether it's impossible to get this amulet after some other event has already happened on your journey.

Guys, I've cracked it. Or to be more accurate, debugged it.

After I wrote "In most of my attempts, no other gems were ever destroyed for mana", I suddenly thought, hold on a minute, I lied, I'm in the habit of maxing out the wild gem and selling that at the start of every battle.

So I tried again without any wild gem and literally did not destroy any gem for its mana. And this time, I got the 7x700 amulet.

Thank heaven, but mainly you guys.

For the record:

I used field F4, swarm only, +20 waves. My gems were both pure lime and dual lime/red. At the end of the battle I had exactly 7 gems on the field all with 700+ non-combined kills. Six of the gems were in amplifiers surrounding the last gem to qualify, which was a grade 8 dual.

Yay. Now all I have to do is kill a shedload of shadows, raid some more tombs, take up gem bombing for a hobby and win about a hundred more battles and I'll have every single amulet in the game. :P

Sounds really hit and miss when it comes to getting this amulet because I know I sold the wild gem to start off yet I had absolutely no luck using dual or triple gems for the 700 kills. I guess people having problems getting this amulet are just going to have to try all different combinations to see what works for them.

I guess so. A couple of people in the comments are now saying that the only thing that worked for them was not using the forge to duplicate gems. So that's another thing for people to try before giving up.

Actually you know, given the apparent randomness, it's most likely that there's some simple bug that reads the wrong piece of game data, and the game data is different for each player, so all our theories about 'the only thing that works for me' are based on unrelated coincidences. It's impossible to verify, since the amulet is a one-off achievement.

The "no more than two gems at once" amulet is probably bugged as well, since I got it without trying to, with a single tower + five amplifier setup, all gemmed up, so there were six gems in play. I guess only one was "active" since the others were in amplifiers, but I have had similar setups in other fields before without getting the amulet, so...

I know I def destroyed my wild gem on both of my got's and it worked just fine. Its the first thing I do every time (well 2nd thing as I first extend mana once). Perhaps you have to "Win" the map for it to count (when you "lose" in endurance its not counting) and the amulet only shows up after the match is done, not the second you hit 7 gems with 700. But I definitely X'ed and duplicated my gems during both of my 7x700 gets on a full 1337 endurance. My guess is that its the "lose" condition when a mob destroys your orb on endurance but you still technically "win" the map for xp.

Yes alright, I accept that the wild gem theory was wrong. But every theory proposed so far has been disproved by someone else having a conflicting experience. That's what needs to be explained.

I think it's a bug, and I hope that GiaB will fix it.

Found a very easy way to farm 200 000 monsters killed without premium.
Field D4.
The idea is to get several low-damage (1k-3k damage without multiple damage) gems with good chain hit component by the time the shadow comes. The shadow will spawn lots of weak monsters (1.5k-3k health each) that you can easily kill. But your gems won't damage the shadow at all. So the shadow will keep on spawning more and more monsters. Their number raises, but their HP and armor stays the same. So you can leave the game running for an hour or two and come back to see 200k monsters killed

Hey, I was wondering if anyone could help me with Field K3
I'm currently level 44 with 416 skill points. Can anyone help me with a basic strategy for this level? Or even K5 for that matter.
Thanks!
